I would recommend this show to anyone who likes gems & simple...continued

Had no idea what to expect, but I was like a kid in a candy shop. Next time I'll come better prepared to buy, buy, buy!

This was a nice show. Not as big as the one in santa monica. They should make it bigger. Plenty of space. The venue is really nice and convenient! plenty of parking and across the street is the mall with shops and food.

Overwhelming ammount of beads, jewels, and jewlery. Probably much more interesting for someone who makes jewelry as a business or hobby.

It was a jewelry shopper's paradise. Lots of venders and lots of great bargains. Come with cash as most prefer that means of transaction.

There were 2 ballroom sized rooms for the vendors at this show. There was only one entrance and the vendors that were set up in that first room were reminiscent of ones I've seen at swap meets. Though some of the people were willing to provide...continued

there was way more bulk bead sellers there than I would have liked. Wanted to see more finished product and felt like I was in a flea market/wholesale show.

The crowds weren't at this location. The crowds at the Santa Monica location were much larger and the vendors noticed this difference. I still stumbled upon some great buys and unique pieces. I prefer the Pasadena location over the Santa Monica...continued

Enjoyable; big but not too big. Lots to see. Many duplications from different vendors but a wide assortment throughout. Many items more expensive than I thought would be at a show of this kind. Nice facility and easy to get to, comfortable inside,...continued

It was a lot of fun! Walking around stopping at every booth and talking to the merchants. It was a nice mix of items. I was especially surprised to find so many vendors who made things to order. You could basically design your own pieces and they...continued

This was my second visit to the Int'l Gem and Jewelry Show at the Pasadena Convention Center. There were far fewer merchants this time around, but it was still enjoyable.

I was quite disappointed - I thought it would be a bitter funner for my kid rather than just the "expo"
